Few ways to do that actually. Is this for local use or online? That could
change things a little... Essentially what you need to do is store a play
list file and have a player that reads that file and then loads the
necessary swf's on the fly, in the order indicated. Actually fairly easy to
do - but how you do it will vary. The playlist could be stored in a
database, a text file if you use a shell app like Director or Zinc, or even
in a SharedObject.

That is a helpful. I will explore what you talk about. This is something that will run off of a hard drive and not over the internet. I prefer to stay with a Flash solution if I can avoid buying other software, unless it is enexpensive ($100). Thanks.
for local use, as dave suggested, using the sharedobject would be the best way to proceed and would require no extra software.
when the save button is pressed you store the ordered swf names in the sharedobject. your "player" will read the sharedobject and play the swfs.
Thanks, that is very helpful. I will post back next week after I have a chance to explore. I am sure I will have additional questions.
but there may be a compilcation. are these being run on the sales staff's computers? so, the same computer will be used to save the swf sequence of several clients?
if so, you'll need to add something, like a name, so the sales staff can retrieve the correct shared object.
Perhaps I am in a bit over my head. I have file that uses "shared object" to load my external .swf file. I cannot figure out how to make that shared object reference a text file for loading the .swf file. Does anyone have an example of this or guideance?
why are you using a text file?
the sharedobject will contain the swf sequence.
